Rangers manager Mark Warburton

"They came in at 2-1 and built from there. Hopefully there's still a long way to go. To come here and get that result is obviously very pleasing. Depth of squad will be important and the substitutes made a difference when they came on."

Bob Perth: "Pity but not surprising that stubs reckons there wasn't much in it between the sides...he talks nonsense..."

Anonymous: "Rangers work ethic today was impressive And their style of play was a breath of fresh air and six well taken goals what more can you ask for (apart from signing Scott Allan !)"

Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs

"We gave some poor goals away. I didn't think there was a lot in the game, especially first half. We made poor decisions, lapses in concentration. To be honest, I'm glad it's happened today and not in two weeks' time."

Almost time for me to go. You can listen to Sportsound - Open all Mics coverage of the rest of today's Scottish Challenge Cup first round ties on BBC Radio Scotland and here on the BBC Sport website.

Glenn: "Good performance from Rangers, looks like it'll be a good season for them #bbcscotfootball"

Rangers manager Mark Warburton
Mark Warburton's Rangers are up and running for the season and they will go into next week's Scottish League Cup meeting with Peterhead with confidence. Defensively, the Ibrox side still have work to do but they were impressive in attack today

James Gutteridge: "Mark Warburton, the Ibrox Mourinho #bbcscotfootball"


Hibernian 2-6 Rangers

It's all over and Rangers progress, handsomely in the end. Some ruthless finishing from the visitors, helped by some poor defending and goalkeeping from the hosts. Hibs too had their moments but they will want to put today behind them.


One minute of stoppage time begins.

Hibernian 2-6 Rangers (Miller)

It's another for Kenny Miller, who applies the finishing touch to Barrie McKay's inventive run on the right.


David Gray heads in Lewis Stevenson's cross but the offside flag cuts short the Hibs captain's celebrations.

Although goals have not been in short supply today, good defending has. In the latest example, Rangers gift the ball to Hibs and Lewis Allan curls a shot over.


Hibernian 2-5 Rangers (Miller)

Kenny Miller scores for Rangers against Hibernian

Substitute Kenny Miller adds his name to scoresheet, bundling in Nicky Clark's cross from the right after Hibs conceded possession near halfway.

Around 15 minutes left at Easter Road.


Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn

Martyn Waghorn makes way for Nicky Clark in Rangers' final change. Two debut goals for the striker today.

Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs
It's been a largely frustrating day for Alan Stubbs. Some terrific attacking play from his Hibs side but defensively, they have been caught short


Just before that fourth Rangers goal, the visitors sent on Kenny Miller and Dean Shiels in place of Jason Holt and David Templeton.


Hibernian 2-4 Rangers (Halliday)

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday

Rangers quickly restore their two-goal lead with Andy Halliday, another debutant, curling the ball in off the underside of the bar. Suspect positioning from the goalkeeper but a superb strike.


Hibernian 2-3 Rangers (Cummings)

Jason Cummings scores a penalty for Hibernian against Rangers

Jason Cummings coolly tucks away the penalty and Hibs are right back in this match.


Jason Cummings goes down after being challenged by Barrie McKay and the hosts have a spot-kick.


Hibs' Scott Allan makes his entrance, coming on for the injured Jordon Forster.


Nicky Law drags a shot wide at the end of a sweeping Rangers counter attack.

Paul Hanlon loops a head over the Rangers crossbar as Hibs try to get back into this match.


Hibernian 1-3 Rangers (Waghorn)

Martyn Waghorn celebrates after scoring for Rangers against Hibernian

It's another for Rangers and another for Martyn Waghorn but Hibs goalkeeper Mark Oxley will not want to see that again. The striker's shot from a tight angle on the left seemed to go straight through the keeper's grasp.


Hibernian 1-2 Rangers

The match resumes with Rangers kicking off.

How will Hibs respond in the second half? Can Rangers build on their lead? Let me know your thoughts...

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland at Easter Road

"It took a moment of individual aplomb to regroup Rangers, and James Tavernier's free-kick strike brought parity and renewed confidence.

"Wahgorn converted the first clear opportunity created for him inside the area, so a half in which Rangers looked uncertain brought reward.

"They need to show that they can build on that, though, with McKay and Templeton still too peripheral.

"Hibs have shown that they can trouble the visitors' defence, so the second half is likely to be finely balanced."


Hibernian 1-2 Rangers

Referee Willie Collum brings the opening period to a close. Hibs will be fuming at being behind after enjoying so much possession and territory as well as a lead but those two Rangers goals late in the first half have turned the match in their favour.


Stoppage time now being played in the first half.


Hibernian 1-2 Rangers (Waghorn)

Martyn Waghonr scores for Rangers against Hibernian

What a turnaround. James Tavernier does well to keep hold of the ball before unleashing Jason Holt, whose low cross is tucked away by Martyn Waghorn.

An exciting first half is drawing to a close. Rangers will be delighted to be level having been second best for much of this first half.

Almost as soon as they are level, a mix-up in the Rangers defence almost gifts the hosts another goal. Wes Foderingham waits too long to make a clearance, Lewis Allan closes him down and the visitors eventually get it out for a corner.


Hibernian 1-1 Rangers (Tavernier)

James Tavernier scores for Rangers against Hibernian

Paul Hanlon fells Jason Holt right on the edge of the box. Three players stand over the ball before James Tavernier curls a sweet striker past Mark Oxley.

Rangers are still struggling to retain possession in attacking areas. They lack the fluency and composure Hibs have shown so far. That said, the hosts could have made more of their dominance in this first half.

Hibernian midfielder Sam Stanton
Sam Stanton's goal is the difference between the two sides so far

Liam Fontaine glances a header wide from Sam Stanton's inviting free-kick but the offside flag had been raised against the Hibs man.

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland at Easter Road

"Hibs are worthy of their lead. Their attacks have carried a far greater threat and penetration than Rangers' forays upfield, with Jason Cummings often spinning into space behind the visitors' defence.

"Hibs look comfortable, while Rangers are still trying to put the phases of their play together and have yet to create a clear cut opportunity. The midfield trio, in particular, need to be more assertive."
